ON POINT by Annabeth Albert
On Point (Out of Uniform) - Annabeth Albert
  Maddox and Ben are on a mission that goes wrong for them. They are SEALS who are also roommates. Ben is very open about his sexuality but Maddox is more lowkey. Before being deployed Ben had set up an encounter that Maddox enjoyed but made their situation weird for Maddox. They have been trying to get back on an even keel since then. Now during recovery they have the opportunity to see if they can make a relationship work for them.

I enjoyed these characters. I liked the main story line. The flashbacks worked well as they fleshed out this story and told us what we needed to know. I liked that the main sticking point for the men was not staying in the closet but deciding if they could move on to the future with different dreams. I will read more of this series.

ASK, TELL by E. J. Noyes
Ask, Tell - E.J. Noyes Ask, Tell - E.J. Noyes
 

Sabine is a captain in the Army serving at a hospital on the battlefield in the Middle East. She is attracted to her CO, Rebecca, who is also attracted to her. Both try to fight their attraction but it becomes a losing battle.

 

A good story with a bit of history of the don't tell, don't ask policy in the military. I liked the characters, all of them. The scenes of the battlefield life are realistic. Solutions are sought and the tension is believable between what Sabine wants and what she knows she cannot have.

I would read this author again.

Book Review of Bad War (A Military Paranormal Romance) by Summer Cooper & Stephen Kingston
Bad War (A Military Paranormal Romance) - Stephen Kingston,Summer Cooper

Zebadiah

Vietnam has taken my friends and almost my life.

Some days, I wish that I had died on that battlefield with them, at least they won’t have to deal with the humiliation I’m about to face when I get sent home.

What’s Mary going to say about her wounded husband?

How am I going to give her the life I promised her now?

She deserves better...

 

Mary

All I wanted was a chance to see him again, to spend another night of passion with him.

That day is finally here!

The day that I’ve most looked forward to, but also the day that I’ve most dreaded.

Now he’s coming home, I’ll do everything in my power to make him the happiest man on the planet… for as long as I can… whatever it takes.

 

Author's Note: This beautiful paranormal romance is not your usual military romance! The story contains mature language and themes, intended for adults only.

Bonus books included in this copy for very limited time.

 

Review 3*

 

This is an intriguing romance story. I did enjoy the story but with some reservations.

 

Zebadiah Rasnake is a really intriguing character. I really liked him a lot. He is a soldier fighting in the Vietnam war, but after being injured he is sent home to rest and recuperate. Waiting to take care of him is his wife Mary and baby Joshua.

 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author with no expectation of a favourable review.

 

I started to read this story and was quickly pulled in. It is told mostly from Zebadiah's POV, although there are some scenes from Mary's POV, as well as another character called Cherokee Joe, who also has a part to play in this tale.

 

I felt deeply for Zebadiah as he dealt with his injuries. However, as I began to delve deeper into this story, I found myself thinking that this story is not your typical paranormal romance. It's more of a supernatural one. There are no shifters, but there are two people who love each other so much that even death can't keep them apart (think ghosts). I don't want to give too much away because there are several twists to keep things interesting. However, I did find some of the dialogue a little stilted and forced at times; it didn't seem to flow naturally. Having said that, I found myself turning the pages in eagerness to see what would happen next. The story took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. The ending was not totally unexpected, but I was a little dissatisfied with it even though it concluded neatly. My first thought after reading the book was: Is that it? In some ways this book, although entertaining, just didn't float my boat. I am sure other readers may not have the same reaction and will enjoy this book more than I did.

 

Summer Cooper and Stephen Kingston have co-written an intriguing romance. Their writing style is relatively fast paced, and the flow of the story is okay. However, I feel they need to work on their dialogue a little more to make it flow more naturally.

 

Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature, I do not recommend this book to young readers. However, I recommend this book if you love reading contemporary or supernatural/paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton

Trapped in the Stars (Sci-fi Military Romance)
Trapped in the Stars (Sci-fi Military Romance) - Lynn Red The plot was great. The characters were decent. But the writing was atrocious and the editing sorely lacking.

Nothing was explained in a satisfactory manner. The author might as well have just said "they did a thing and life support came back on" or "abracadabra, the bad guy was dead"... I wouldn't be surprised if somebody told me that every other sentence had been removed from the book because that's what it felt like.

As for editing... Quotation marks just scattered throughout. Really difficult to understand dialogue with no quotation mark to close it off.

And the ending might as well have been a cliffhanger - not much is resolved and I haven't a clue as to what's going on with the H/h.

Wouldn't recommend. It's quite unsatisfactory.

A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry Spear
A Very Jaguar Christmas (Heart of the Jaguar) - Terry Spear

I really wanted to love this one. There were so many great elements, but they never really came together. Demetria and Everett have a shared grief that has kept them apart - it was quite a sad beginning, which you don't usually see in a Christmas novel, and that was good. It set it apart a little. But, things change very quickly when they find an abandoned cub. Now, this cub is quite a surprise - it's beyond a surprise, but I can't give it away. Let's just say the Jaguar world will never be the same.

It was cure and well done, this introduction to something new. But it sort of took over the story. Instead of watching Demetria and Everett bond over a little cub, it turned into more of a mystery with a dash of sex. I needed more romance and feelings and denied attraction.

It also sort of bounced around a bit. At times it was hard to follow the dialog and keep up with who was doing what.

*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
